I've never converted a mini before...so nothing crazy.

The initial thought came from the Bones werewolf, because I was in a computer BB league and those werewolves are nightmares! So for starters, I'd probably just remove the weapons (except maybe goblins, or add a chainsaw). Learning green stuff is on my short list, so maybe the weapon removal from an orc would be a good starting point.

Later on I could think about helmets or armor or posing...

I plan on hiding my minis all over the house and getting a double vampire level of pleasure as my wife goes crazy trying to eradicate them all. :ph34r:

Wish I had time to learn how to do conversion, but I'm not good with clay/playdough stuff. And with the kickstarter, I'm going to be learning how to paint.

Goal of 2014: 200 painted miniatures

Show Off: (32/200) Most recent - 77127 Vermin: Beetles

Work in Progress: (Clay Golem)

gonna paint all fantasy minis by mid-October, make a display base for them, win diorama category at the Polish painting contest (Hussar) and then sell them for few thousand dollars.

I soooo love my plans!

After I've buried most of them

You . . . uh . . . you know that won't grow into Bones trees, right? * imagines a Bones tree * Okay, on the off chance that some of these Bones are enchanted like those beans I bought last year from that weird hermit guy, I think I'll try it anyway.


aaaaand that's where they got the idea for the Cloud Giantess. She was nice enough to pose for that drawing before picking up the original artist and eating him.

I've been thinking about this since I threw down my money for the Vampire level. I want to run a game that goes through the entire set. I want to use all of the miniatures that I purchased through the Kickstarter and It'll take a bit of planning to figure out, but I have months before I get the figs. There's such a wide range of product lines that I may wind up pulling together my own setting to make it work. It's a little crazy, but I think I could have some fun with it.


Ironically I was doing this while the KS was still going on. I managed to finish the outline for an entire campaign based largely on what's comming in March, lol.

I've just looked at these, after locking in my pledge and am thinking of using a few to make my own "gelatinous cubes" using melt and pour soup (the clear stuff). The perfect present for fellow geeks. A gelatinous cube which you can use in the shower and on the table... and get a bonus mini after, lol.

I'll have to test it to see if the paint survives the soap.

Definitely interested in how to do this! (:

Take one square mold: 2inches x 2 inches approx
Get clear melt and pour soap (from craft shops etc)
Take one (or more) minis. Pour some soap (melted) in the bottom of mold. Allow to partially set. Place mini in (feet/head in the partially set stuff to hold it in place). Pour rest of soap in carefully. Allow to fully dry

If wanting to use for table top purposes, clear varnish.
If wanting to use as soap, dont varnish.

If want to recover mini from varnished soap carefully cut off varnished layer, melt soap, pull mini out (and reuse soap, but probably at this stage not for soap...)

(Stops browsing, stunned)

. . . . I thought I went a bit over the top doubling up Nethyrmaul and Kaladrax. Nine Cthulhu's!

Amazement aside, it's a nice thought. There'll be some appreciative gamers when birthdays and Christmas come around. Some of my bones will be going to friends and family as well - Although they're going to be painted first.

Sometimes you frighten me, Bugs. You really do... I can only wonder at the maze that is your mind...

:poke:
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
John Stuart Mill
English economist & philosopher (1806 - 1873)

You're not the first to say that. Some years back when I was dating a quite smashing young lady, she asked me how on earth I came up with things. I thought about that for a few minutes, trying to figure out how to explain it in an understandable way.

And presently I said:

Imagine inside my head is a small room. There's three gnomes. One blue, one red, and one green. Along one wall is a giant steel round plug, with a spoked wheel on the outside. When information is processed in the form of stimuli, by which I mean you say something to me that warrants a response, the Blue Gnome spins the wheel, opens the lock, and reveals a swirling galactic vortex. He reaches in, and pulls something out. This he hands to the Green Gnome.

The Green Gnome appraises the retrieved thing, makes notations as to its relevance and association with other previously known things, marks it good, and hands it off the the Red Gnome.

The Red Gnome makes a final check of the information, adds any additional notes, and then sends it down the priority chute to my mouth - where it emerges in the form of sound waves your ears can process, or to the hands to form words on the page for eyes to read.

This process happens in milliseconds, because they are very efficient workers. So, you see, that is how my mind works.

Her: "So what are the mind gnomes doing now?"

Me: "Listening to Cyndi Lauper, of course. What else would mind gnomes do?"



And now you know, too. And someday, if you're a good demon lord, I'd tell you the tale of the Rock N' Roll Superfunky Technicolour Spidermonkey.
